KHOI Donate a Vehicle Program

May 26, 2013 - 2:07pm -- Debbie

KHOI wants your old vehicles!  Car, tractor, atv, recreational vehicle - if it's got an engine, running or not - donate it to KHOI and receive a tax deduction along with the continuation and further development of programs you want to hear on 89.1 FM. 

How does it work?  Just call the station at 515-292-2878 and we'll get the process started.  We send a tow truck out to your location - you don't have to do a thing, except make the call and sign over the title to the vehicle.
